The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved a new Samsung device called the SM-A716V for sale. This phone is thought to be called the Galaxy A71s 5G on launch. According to its new official schematics, it may look much like the pre-existing A71. However, there are some signs its potential new derivative is destined for the Verizon network.

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is a version of the original A71 with more up-to-date connectivity. Similarly, it looks more and more like the SM-A716V, a device discovered thanks to some recent leaks, is derived from the newer phone in turn but with a different form of the latest bands. The FCC has contributed more evidence of this by certifying it as having millimeter-wave (mmWave) connectivity.

This suggests it supports the type of 5G that requires a relatively high volume of state-of-the-art mobile towers, such as those currently maintained by the carrier Verizon in the United States. Therefore, it seems the "Galaxy A71s" is headed to this carrier; in addition, the V in its model number is also indicative of this eventuality.

Accordingly, the phone may also have "UW" tacked onto its name at launch. Its new official leak does not provide any more insight as to its specs. However, it does offer a range of schematics that suggest it may not have the same chassis as its immediate predecessor: it measures 151.7 x 69.1mm in height and width with a diagonal length of 174mm, whereas the A71 is 162.5 x 75.5mm.

However, they do still have the same central punch-hole for the selfie camera. To date, this putative Galaxy A71s 5G UW lacks a date for its debut.
